Finding a Rehab Center
Do you feel like your loved one needs to check themselves into an alcohol rehab? Are you starting to worry about their health and well-being, but you don’t know what to do in order to get them into some type of a treatment program? We are going to help you answer these questions plus a few more in this article so I suggest you continue reading this information if this is a topic that you find to be of some real importance to you. So let’s dig into it a little bit more thoroughly right now.
Staging an Alcohol Intervention
The best way for you to approach your friend or family member about alcohol rehab is to do so from the standpoint of an alcohol abuse intervention. This is a situation where you will get as large a group of friends and family members as possible together so that you can get them all in one room and confront the alcoholic about their drinking problem.
You are going to try and point out how much their drinking is negatively affecting your life as well as theirs, and you’re going to do your best to talk them into entering a treatment facility for alcohol addiction so that they can finally get well and move past this addiction.
One thing that a lot of people aren’t often comfortable with regarding an intervention is the fact that you have to lay down an ultimatum with the alcoholic right on the spot. There’s no avoiding this because the whole reason you are intervening in their life is to get them into an alcohol rehab, so you’re going to obviously have to demand that they enter the rehab program or get cut off from the group of you until they clean up their act.
This often makes the alcoholic feel like they are being abandoned and it also often makes the people in the life of the alcoholic feel like they are abandoning the person. But it’s honestly one of the best ways to convince an alcoholic that they truly need help because all of you people wouldn’t get together in this capacity if you didn’t truly believe that there was a real problem.
Although the alcoholic in your life isn’t going to want to hear what you have to say to them, they very well could submit to your will and the will of the group because deep down inside they know they have a problem and they want to get help with it anyway. So you’ll just be doing your best to point them in the right direction, and giving them another option that they probably don’t even believe they’ve had all along.
So going the intervention route is definitely going to be the best way for you to get your loved one into an alcohol rehab. It is extremely effective when done right, and there is something like a 90% chance that the alcoholic will enter a treatment program if an intervention takes place. Those are definitely the kind of odds you want in your favor.
